Block Island’s Harbormaster Steve Land, who oversees and enforces boating activities in New and Old Harbors, may also train in the police academy to become a police officer, according to an article in the Block Island Times.
Block Island Police Chief Vincent Carlone proposed the idea to the town council at its September 4 (2013) work session. He said that Land would be trained as an officer and have full police powers. Land’s main job would still be as harbormaster, but Land would also function as a fifth officer, helping the police department out when needed, especially during the winter months.
